Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, but be proactive about the security of your belongings. Leave your campground empty, don’t bring what you cannot afford to lose and be sure to look after one another. If you’re concerned about valuables in your tent, you might consider using a small padlock.


Medical professionals are on-site during festival hours. Medical teams are in the main festival site (Ballfield). Location is marked on the Festival Map.

In an emergency, if you’re not near a medical tent, find a staff person with a radio, or notify the nearest Event Staff personnel.
